|注意：||Most notebooks have some form of spine or cover label, but these titles do not always reflect the full range of the contents; some contain the sources for a particular article or section of a book (some specific articles are referred to in the contents list in this record, but these references are by no means comprehensive). The volume numbers have been assigned by the cataloger. There is no index, though tabs and the alphabetical, chronological, or topical subarrangement of materials within notebooks facilitate the location of information.|
